Homemade roasted tomatillo salsa!!!


  • 8-10 tomatillos, husked and washed

  • 1-2 tomatoes, washed. Any tomatoes are fine but the juicier the better.

  • 2 large jalapenos, washed

  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled

  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, washed and coarsely chopped

  • 1 large yellow onion coarsely chopped

  • Olive oil

  • Kosher salt


  1. Combine tomatillos, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and jalapenos in a bowl.

  2. Drizzle olive oil and toss until the mixture is completely coated.

  3. Use a heavy-duty foil to make a packet and pour contents of the bowl in it. Fold the top to lock in the mixture.

  4. Roast the mixture using one of the methods below:

    1. Oven method: Place under a broiler, and cook for a few minutes. 5 minutes for a light roast, 8-10 minutes for deeper roasted flavor.

    2. Stovetop method: Set the foil on a cast iron pan and place on the stovetop for 4-5 minutes. Toss over the foil to make sure the mixture is even charred. Roast for another 4-5 minutes.

  5. Set aside to cool.

  6. Place the mixture in a blender with the chopped cilantro. Add a little water if needed, to get the blender going.

  7. Add salt to taste.

  8. Enjoy fresh with tortilla chips or refrigerate for later.
